Meet Me in St. Louis
December 2 - December 18, 2022
With the holiday comes the classic Meet Me in St. Louis, celebrating family, community, and the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. With all the music and magic of the film, Meet Me in St. Louis will be the perfect family show to kick off the season.
It is the summer of 1903, and everyone in the Smith family eagerly anticipates the opening of the 1904 World's Fair. Over the course of a year, the family's mutual respect, tempered with good-natured humor, helps them through romance, opportunity, and heartbreaks. the musical includes seven of the best-loved songs from the film, plus ten additional Martin and Blane songs written especially for the stage. Memorable musical numbers include "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "The Boy Next Door," "The Trolley Song," and "Whenever I'm with You."
"A delightful take on a nostalgic classic... Hugh Wheeler s book for the musical, based on Sally Benson s nostalgic stories, is family-friendly in its handling of first love, sibling rivalry, harmless pranks and hometown pride. " Misha Berson, The Seattle Times
